The Dovekeepers: A Novel: Alice Hoffman

This one struck so close to home, it was painful. My grandmother's name was Alice. My world revolves around words. Read it!

A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra. Set in Chechnya, the novel spans the time period from 1994-2004, jumping back and forth between characters and time frames. In this way, we come to learn the stories of the main characters, the horrors they have experienced, the dreams they still hold on to. I loved how the author provided glimpses into the futures and pasts of minor characters who cross the paths of the main characters. Loved it!

The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri. Good Reads Fiction Nominee. I rate this 4 stars. I liked the characters, but felt they were a little flat at times. Perhaps it is the essence of India.

Finn: A Novel. Loved the recreation of Huck Finn's father in this novel. He does a masterful job of creating a despicable character and then weaving into his story the scene from Mark Twain's novel. Reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's "Suttree" character.
